Whoever wrote Rahul Gandhi’s speech for his rally in Delhi on Monday desperately needs to run a quick Google search.
Gandhi, while addressing the OBC community at Talkatora Stadium, said that the founder of the international brand Coca-Cola was a shikanji-wala and the founder of McDonald’s was a dhaba owner.
Social media, of course, couldn’t hold back. After Gandhi’s comments, #AccordingToRahulGandhi began trending on Twitter.
Here are some hilarious responses under the hashtag.
Award for the Best Comedian in India Goes To...
Tweeple were quick to give the Congress President the award for the Best Comedian in India.
The Silver Lining
Some found a silver lining even in this goof-up. Only Rahul Gandhi can get #Shikanji trending on social media, said some.
Some even considered it a possible boost for #MakeInIndia campaign.
